Introduction

When a Boston Terrier and Toy Fox Terrier are bred, the result is the Toy Foxton. Toy Foxtons are small dogs with a lot of energy. These little dogs are known for their intelligence and cute appearance. They are considered easy to train, which makes them a dream for many want-to-be dog owners. Toy Foxtons are very social, and they are known for being good with both other dogs and children. While these dogs don't require a lot of physical activity, they do need some! We have some great ideas for fun activities you can do with your dog.

If you love to go camping but hate leaving your dog behind, worry no more! It is totally possible to bring your dog on a camping trip with you. While it isn't an easy activity, it is very possible, and many people take their dogs camping all of the time. We recommend that you only bring your dog camping when the weather is nice. Don't bring your Toy Foxton camping when it is too hot or too cold outside. Remember that dogs will need food and water throughout the trip, so bring enough for the whole trip. You also need a leash, tent, and dog first aid kit.

Step
1
Find a campsite
You will first need to find a dog-friendly campsite. Not all places allow dogs, but there are still lots of options. Do a little research to find places that allow dogs and review all of the rules that you will need to follow. It is important that you follow the rules for the safety of your pet and other people in the area.
Step
2
Get necessary supplies
It is important that you arrive at the campsite with all of the necessary supplies that your dog needs. The most important items are food and water. You need enough to get you through the amount of time you will be camping. A tent and first aid kit are also going to be necessary for camping with your dog. Consider the weather and what other supplies you might need, like blankets and extra clothing such as a doggy jacket for your little Toy Foxton.
Step
3
Arrange the camp
Once at the campsite, find a flat place for your tent. You also need to make sure that your dog's food and water are on flat ground. Establish a place for your dog to relieve themselves that isn't right near your tent. Your campsite should have adequate shade to prevent overheating, especially if it is hot. Keep your Toy Foxton right by your side and watch them at all times around the campfire.

Interactive Feeder
Food
Activity description
Do you notice your dog eating really fast? By the time you have put the food in the bowl, is it nearly gone? Help your dog slow down and have more fun with an interactive feeder. Interactive feeders challenge your dog to find new ways to get their food out of the puzzle. In some cases, interactive feeders just make it a little more difficult for your dog to get food, while other feeders are more like puzzles that require a lot of thought and effort. Make feeding time a fun activity with an interactive feeder and help your dog eat at a slower pace all at the same time. An interactive feeder is also an inexpensive and easy way to give your Toy Foxton the mental stimulation they crave.
Step
1
Find an interactive feeder
While it is generally pretty easy to find these items in a pet store or online, you might want to review a few different types before deciding on one. Some interactive feeders just spread your dog's food out over a larger surface with knobs that make your dog lick around for food. Others are puzzles that must be solved by moving certain pieces around the board. Pick whichever option you think is best for your Toy Foxton.
Step
2
Feed your dog
You might want to start by giving your dog treats in the feeder to teach them how it works. Once they understand how to get their food, you can start putting their meals in the feeder. If you notice that the feeder doesn't seem to slow your dog down, you can graduate to a more complicated variety.

Activity description

You probably played Hide and Seek hundreds of times as a kid. Why not feel like a kid again by playing Hide and Seek with your pooch? You can play Hide and Seek inside your home without the need for anything other than treats. As long as your dog will follow the "stay" command until you verbally release them, you can partake in this fun activity with your Toy Foxton. Once you are hidden, you can call your dog and see how long it takes them to find you. Be sure that you aren't hiding in places your dog doesn't normally have access to, such as a closed room.

Step
1
Training
Before you can play Hide and Seek, you need to teach your dog to stay in one place until verbally released. Give your dog the command and then slowly walk backward. When they listen, reward them with a treat. Be sure that you are able to leave their sight before you try this fun game.
Step
2
Hide
When your dog is well-trained, put them in a stay and run off to hide. Once you are hidden in an appropriate place that your dog has access to, command your dog to find you. When they locate you, be sure to reward them with a treat, and repeat the process. Be sure that you are choosing different hiding spots, however, to keep the game fun and challenging. On a nice day, you can take the game outside for added difficulty!
